The Buffalo Bills spent a top draft pick, and moved up for, wide receiver Sammy Watkins. He is locking up that top wide receiver slot and the Bills are trying to figure out who will play behind him in the second spot on the depth chart.
The Bills would like that player to be 2013 second-round draft pick Roberts Woods, and head coach Doug Marrone thinks he plays better with a chip on his shoulder.
“We know Robert can play three positions for us. We’re just trying to figure out what’s the best combination that we have out there,” Marrone said Wednesday, via ESPN.com’s Mike Rodak. “When Robert first came to camp, he didn’t do that. Not to say he was complacent or not, but I told Robert today, when he plays with that little chip on his shoulder, he’s a darn good football player.
“I said, we need to see you play more with a chip on your shoulder every single day, and I think you’ll see that same result as you saw in the game and today.”
